1. 2020 Geely Azkarra vs Ford Territory: Battle of the crossovers

The crossover market in the Philippines is certainly becoming quite populous, and that’s a good thing since there are now more choices for consumers. What’s special about these new crossover models, however, is that their prices are really competitive. Emphasis on competitive.

One example of these feature heavy, but still affordable crossovers is the Ford Territory. It’s made in China, but it bears the same Ford identity that we’ve become familiar with. It looks macho, and it’s quite capable as a daily driver.

Similarly, the Geely Azkarra is also built in China. It’s also filled to the brim with features, and it can also potentially fill in the role of a daily family car. And yeah, it also has the power to back up its handsome good looks.

But which of these two are better specs-wise? To find out, let’s compare the Geely Azkarra Premium with the Ford Territory Titanium+. The former, after all, is only Php 139,000 more expensive than the latter’s price tag.

7. 2020 Geely Azkarra vs Ford Territory: Conclusion

Both the Geely Azkarra Premium and the Ford Territory Titanium+ are designed to rock the local crossover market, having very affordable prices relative to their specs.

The Geely branded crossover driver-assist features aren’t as extensive as the Ford Territory. As such, a driver that needs a bit of guidance might gravitate more to the said Ford model.

Which rear end tickles your fancy?

Note however that the Azkarra, despite having fewer cylinders, is significantly more powerful than the Territory. It makes 34 horsepower more, and it uses an actual torque converter rather than a CVT. For some, that setup might be the sportier choice.
